When you first snap LifeProof’s nüüd case around your iPad, it seems too good to be true. The case adds just 0.7 ounce of weight, inserts no barrier between your fingers and the screen and still manages to make your tablet water-, snow-, dirt- and shock-proof. Although it completely seals the iPad, you can still access the headphone jack and charge port and can still use all the buttons. Thanks to its patent-pending Sound Enhancement System, the LifeProof case also provides excellent sound quality without compromising its waterproofing, while its shock-proofing allows your iPad to be safely dropped from as high as four feet. This robust yet sleek case will transform your iPad into a resilient on-the-water computer. An optional cover (pictured at left) doubles as a stand. From $99. LifeProof, lifeproof.com
